lots and LOTS of photos

It's been a very busy weekend and I played the paparazzi family has come to expect it now though.

First up Saturday morning. It was Abbey's first netball game. For those international visitors that don't know what that is, I guess the easiest way to describe it is to say it's similar to basketball, commonly played by females but you can't bounce the ball or walk/run when you have the ball. There is a goal at each end, like basketball and a goal is equal to 1 point. (I hope that has helped). The finaly score was 2-2 so no winners which I think was a good idea, being that all the girls are between 6 and 7 I think it was a good result to show them there doesn't have to be a winner for them to have fun! Here's the pics...we are so proud of her, she did a great job!

she played 'centre'. that's her with the C on her shirt

Saturday night we had a family night. Daniel was home for the weekend and we decided to make the most of it. We had a nice afternoon of cooking together. Minestrone soup filled with beautiful fresh vegetables and then followed by Turner made Pizza's....they were delicious! Here's a pic of Abbey pretending to cook her pizza in her own little kitchen......

and here is a pic of her tasting pineapple juice - love the look on her face

we finished the night off watching a movie together and had a great time.

today - Sunday. It was my nephew Nate's Christening and First birthday party and what a gorgeous day to have it. The sun was shining and there was no wind at all - very unusual for this time of year that's for sure. So, off to church this morning for him to be baptised then back at their place for a party for his birthday.

we all had a fun day celebrating with Natey and catching up with family and friends we hadn't seen for a long time.

I managed to fit in a card for Nate's christening - very simple and quick but cute (i think)

well, that's it. Sorry for so many pics everyone but I took over 300 over the course of the weekend it was hard to decide what to post!

Better go feed my family some dinner now...until next time
